Cruise Ship Vocabulary When most people talk about travel, there are no tricky words or unique phrases, but cruise ship vocabulary can be a foreign language to uninitiated travelers. Whether you're trying to find your way around the ship, planning what to do, or just learning about different aspects of cruise travel, it's best to know the appropriate lingo and avoid sounding like a land lubber. Types of Cruise Ships Before you set sail, it's important to understand what type of vessel you'll be embarking on - just as all cruise lines have personalities, different types of ships offer vastly different experiences. Mainstream Vessel: A mainstream ship is the most common type, a floating resort marketed to the majority of cruise passengers.

Email writing Email writing Submitted by admin on 8 October, 2008 - 15:22 The main focus of this lesson will be on writing semi-formal emails, and the students will send an email to a tourist information centre of their choice using the rules they will have studied in the first half of the lesson. I have done this lesson several times myself and although not all of the students received replies from the information centres they emailed, most of them did, which in itself gave them much satisfaction. The lesson is suitable for intermediate students and above, although if simplified could be adapted for use with lower levels.

West Country Tours ~ Cornwall, Devon & Stonehenge Private car/minibus - 5 Days This tour takes you into a pace of life long gone elsewhere in England, quaint meandering lanes in sleepy villages, romantic associations with King Arthur and Guinevere, the vast wild spaces of Dartmoor, Exmoor and Bodmin Moor - dramatic and full of contrast with jagged granite tors, prehistoric crosses and stone circles where wild ponies and red deer roam. Visit the ancient city of Winchester, once capital of England, Salisbury with its 13th century Cathedral, Stonehenge, Britain's most important prehistoric monument and the exquisite gardens at Stourhead. Stay three nights in Devon or Cornwall to relax and explore the region: Exeter, Buckland-in-the-Moor, Castle Drogo, a granite castle overlooking the wooded gorge of the River Teign, St Mawes and Pendennis, across the estuary - both built by Henry VIII to fortify the coast line in reaction to the Pope's crusade against him.
